The same company is placirg upon the market a spiral round piston and valve rod packing, which it designates as “nox-all”—a trade mark which it is now applying to various other lines of goods as packing. The “ nox-all ” packing is made in the form of a continuous spiral coil, and consists of a round red rubber core surrounded by layers or piles of specially woven duck, and the outside is thoroughly coated and lubricated with a selected grade of fine plumbago, entirely free from acid or grit. This packing is soft, elastic, and durable ; will withstand the heat of high pressure steam ; and combines all of the desirable features of a first-class piston and valve rod packing. “Nox-all” packing is put up in rectangular shape boxes of maroon color, containing three or more coils, according to size.
